Operation again from "W6FA - South" , 1200' up the South slope of Mt. Wilson,
with a fabulous view of Catalina Island, Palos Verdes, down-town LA..  Rig was
an IC-756 on 6 meters to an R-8 vertical or a 40 meter dipole, plus an
IC-706MKIIG  on 2 meters to a two-band Diamond vertical.

I can't believe how dead this contest was!  There was virtually nothing on the
air.  If it wasn't for a couple of S9+20 dB signals from Orange county, I would
swear my rig or antennas were broken.  The few stations I worked also commented
on how poor this contest was.

I'm looking forward to getting back to "W6FA - North" in August.  We're now in
"week 16" of our retaining wall/walkway project here, estimated by the
contractor to be "10 weeks."  It's looking like 2 or 3 more weeks to go...
